More Broadway Milestones

It has been quite a week for Broadway shows, with several shows marking milestones.  Here's a quick look at the ones that happened this week (September 12 - 16, 2011)!

OPENING:

September 12: The starry revival of Follies opened to mostly enthusiastic reviews at the Marquis Theatre.  StageGrade.com took all of the major reviews into consideration and gave it an average score of A-.  (Talkin' Broadway was the major nay-sayer giving it an "F".)
